Just want to throw some ideas around!

I use paper, pollyfiller, the very expensive modelling paste, and string.

What do you use?

sand, salt, string, rope, plastic bags, scruntched foil, rags, any thing at all!

Splodgy thick white Acrylic paint - let it dry thoroughly and then paint on top with Watercolours. It does a lot of its own thing and the results can be quite exciting...! Nancy

PVA glue mixed with acrylic paint. I use black paint & neat PVA to get a leading effect like stained glass windows.
Grains, papier mache pulp, yarn, embroidery cotton, anything really.

Gesso works sometimes. I know an artist that uses it regularly. His latest few projects are about textured work - check them out if you like .... http://andyskinnerorg.blogspot.com/
